Earlier composition taxpayers were ineligible to supply their goods through online platform, he said.

“The condition of mandatory registration of suppliers supplying goods through ecommerce operators up to threshold limit for registration has been removed,” the finance minister, adding that this will enable small taxpayers who were otherwise bereft of access to online retail platforms to outreach greater market and consumer base.

On the constitution of state benches of the Goods and Services Tax Appellate Tribunal, Cheema said this will provide an appellate forum to taxpayers and will reduce the burden of higher courts.
